10 Things You Need To Know That Are Going On This Weekend

SPECIAL EDITION: 10 Things You Need To Know That Are Going On This Weekend

Courtesy of Joe Weisenthal, at Clusterstock 

It’s a Saturday, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it, because there’s a heck of a lot going on. 

Here’s what you need to be paying attention to this May Day.

  • Greece/IMF/EU talks continue. According to Greek government officials, some kind of announcement may be made today. The market is hoping to hear something that’s orders of magnitude stronger than any bailout announcement we’ve gotten so far, or otherwise the feeling will be that it can and will fall through again.
  • Of course, there are fresh violent, anti-austerity protests going on today in Athens. The fact that it’s May Day, a day for celebrating anti-capitalism only adds to the tension.
  • New reports suggest the criminal probe into Goldman Sachs is not just a perfunctory follow-on to the SEC charges, but rather a truly separate thing that’s wider than Abacus, and that started before the SEC’s investigation. HUGE.
  • With just five days before the election, UK’s The Guardian has endorsed the Liberal Democrats, the country’s biggest third party. Its leader, Nick Clegg, has surged thanks to a string of strong debate performances, Gordon Brown’s disastrous campaigning, and a lingering sense of unease with the conservatives.

    Not So Fast: China Will Not Allow Use Of Yuan As Bargaining Chip To Resolve Trade War

    Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

    With market optimism brimming that it's just a matter of days, if not hours, before the US and China reach a truce in the ongoing trade war - even though there have been countless accurate analyses in recent weeks explaining why an actual trade deal is impossible since the object of contention is not trade at all but China's creeping technological dominance, something which Beijing will never voluntarily concede - Beijing has poured cold water over expectations of an imminent deal when China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Wednesday that Chi...

    Are Bank Stocks Ready to Right-Side the Bull Market?

    Courtesy of Chris Kimble.

    The bank sector is a good indicator of the health of the broader stock market.

    Bulls like to see the banks in a leadership role because it indicates that the economy is doing well. But when they begin to lose momentum and underperform, it often leads to pullbacks and corrections.

    As you can see in today’s chart, the Bank Index (BKX) began to stumble well before the recent correction. And that bearish divergence was a warning to market bulls – similar to the 2015-2016 setup.

    On the other hand, the recent rally has given bulls an opportunity to right-side th...

    Courtesy of Zero Hedge

    Cryptocurrencies are surging while the US equity markets take the day off. Ethereum is up over 18% from Friday's 'close' and the rest of the crypto space is a sea of green. While no immediate catalyst (headline or technical level) is clear, increasing chatter over institutional investors dipping their toes in the space have prompted an extension of the positive trend.
